Democrats have no shame

According to the AP, Joker Al Franken’s campaign tried to add
votes to their tally that had already been disqualified.
Fortunately, the Hennepin County Board of Elections shot them down.

From the AP

Minnesota’s largest county has declined a request from
Al Franken’s Senate campaign to reconsider some disqualified
absentee ballots. […] Board members said the ballots could be
dealt with during the upcoming recount.

These “votes” were from people whose signatures didn’t match or who
were not registered or improperly registered.

Norm Coleman’s campaign issued a statement that cuts to the
heart of the matter:

“The Al Franken campaign today tried to stuff new
ballots into the ballot box in a brazen, last minute act of
desperation. We have raised concerns repeatedly about these types
of tactics by the Franken campaign. Today is further evidence of
their intent to use whatever means necessary to counter the
decision of the people of Minnesota. We applaud the actions of the
Hennepin County Canvassing Board in rejecting this blatant,
desperate act.”

The “desperation” point is key. The Franken campaign is running out
of ways to steal the election. So they are flailing for lame
mechanisms to do so.

They are afraid.
